The much-loved Aesop fable springs to life in this lively musical adaptation. Henry is a racer, one of the fastest bunnies the forest has ever seen. Shelly’s a tortoise, his quietly devoted best friend. Henry has always been the star of the show, until one day Shelly starts to have some dreams of her own. With the help of her forest friends, Shelly realizes her own worth, and Henry finds out that sometimes being the best isn’t the most important thing.
